The Secret Garden


Published February 22, 2006


Librivox recording of The Secret Garden, by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Read by Kara Shallenberg

Mary Lennox is a spoiled, middle-class, self-centred child who has been recently orphaned. She is accepted into the quiet and remote country house of an uncle, who has almost completely withdrawn into himself after the death of his wife. Mary gradually becomes drawn into the hidden side of the house: why does she hear the crying of a unseen child? Why is there an overgrown, walled garden, its door long locked? (Summary by Peter)

Read by Kara Shallenberg

Subject: Perfectly delightful reading
One of my very favorite Librivox books.

Sep. 2014: I just listened to it again. This is a very very strong candidate for the best book ever read on Librivox, or anyplace else for that matter. No one, including any professional reader, could have possibly read this book better than Kara "Kayray" Shallenberg. Twenty-five stars!

Subject: Such a good book
This is a classic so no summary really necessary. The reader does a very good job with character voices. I also noticed birds chirping in the background, which I thought added a nice bit of sound effects to the reading. Thank you!
